Meet your Miss FQ Maybelline Influence Awards 2019 finalists: Travel category

2 September 2019
By Fashion Quarterly

These jet-setters know a thing or two about getting the perfect ‘gram.

Travelling the world is no small feat. But mastering the art of capturing each and every moment while doing it (and making us feel like we’re all there with them!) is worthy of recognition, right? Which is probably why you nominated these travelling content creators as your finalists for the Miss FQ Maybelline Influence Awards – they just do what they do so well but they also educate us, expand our horizons and help us build our travel bucket lists in the process.

This year the travel category (brought to you by Bondi Sands – can you think of a more perfect travel companion?! We can’t!) has five strong contenders who have perfected the art of travel photography and make us wish every day that we could squeeze in their suitcases to explore with them.

Are you ready to meet your travel finalists brought to you by Bondi Sands?


Ash brings magic to everything she touches. Nominated and chosen as your Travel category winner for 2018 (and before that, she took out the Up & Comer category in 2017), this natural beauty is back for another year, with many new cities explored under her belt and on her ‘gram.




Travelling with her partner here there and everywhere, this travel YouTuber with over 100,000 followers is a full-time explorer. If you’re itching to quit your job and travel fulltime, Stacey also runs a website programme, giving you an insider guide to making it happen.


Kseniia’s authentic approach to creating content makes her a girl you need to know. Taking you along with her around New Zealand, she’s the local travel guide that shows you what’s on offer, right on your doorstep.


Carmen has a flair for creating captivating content that gives us instant travel envy. Taking photographs with a point of difference, a follow on her ‘gram will have you transported up and close to wildlife or high in the mountains with her.


Stephanie goes above and beyond to take a carefully curated image. Her passion and vision for producing ground-breaking content has drawn thousands to travel all around the world with her.

Be sure to head to our voting page to ensure your favourite finalist takes out their category! Plus for every series of votes you enter, you’ll be in the draw to win some amazing prizes, including $200 worth of Maybelline makeup and a double pass to attend the glamorous awards evening.
